Food, Storytelling and Anthony Bourdain

“What makes you happy? What do you eat? What do you like to cook?”

3 simple questions yet hundreds, if not thousands of exciting and inspiring answers. This was the recipe and secret behind the television success that was world- renowned chef, writter and tv personality, Anthony Bourdain.

As I am packing my bags, my camera and preparing all my interviews and stories for “Project Healthy in Italy” (read about it here), the sad news that Mr. Bourdain has passed away reached me.

The world will definitely be poorer and a great storyteller and  food guru has left this world all to soon…

Anthony and his work has been a great inspiration and a catalyst  behind my upcoming month long quest in Italy. I will explore the stories behind the people and food that make up the sum as to why the country and its’ people are so healthy.

Along the journey I will do my best to honor the spirit of Mr. Bourdain and I will vow to ask eveyone I meet on my journey: “What makes you happy? What do you eat? What do you like to cook?” 

See you in Italy June 9- July 6.
